Reptiles and Herbivory
This book discusses reptile herbivory in the context of dinosaurs, lizards, turtles, and tortoises, as well as other herbivores from around the world. Expand
The Functional Anatomy of a Permian Dicynodont
It is concluded that Dicynodon trigonocephalus was a slow-moving herbivore, nevertheless capable of a sustained locomotory effort and may have avoided predators by crepuscular or cryptic behaviour. Expand
A taxonomic revision of small dicynodonts with postcanine teeth
It is concluded that only four genera, Emydops, Eodicynodon, Robertia and Pristerodon, can be defined satisfactorily on the basis of well-preserved and adequately prepared specimens, and ten are not valid and may be accommodated within the four well-characterized genera. Expand
The evolution of the dicynodont feeding system
It is concluded that the changes in skull organization seen during the evolution of dicynodonts are consistent with the hypothesis that a propalinal jaw action was being improved by selection, and that this was required to permit dicyynodons to be efficient herbivores. Expand
The postcranial skeleton of Kingoria nowacki (von Huene) (Therapsida: Dicynodontia)
It is concluded that the hindlimb was modified from the normal dicynodont pattern in a direction comparable to that of advanced mammal-like reptiles which are presumed to have given rise to mammals. Expand
Terrestrial tetrapods and the end Permian event: A comparison of analyses
Previous analyses of changes in diversity of Permo‐Triassic tetrapods are reviewed and compared. Biases inherent in such studies which distort the picture of diversity change are discussed. A newExpand
The palaeobiogeography of Permian anomodonts
It is generally considered that the oldest anomodont mammal-like reptiles are known from Late Permian sediments of the USSR and that during the rest of the Late Permian distribution of these fossilsExpand
